The Times also talks up the Guston estate moving to Hauser + Wirth:
Another veteran of the McKee, Philip Guston, joined in 1974, when his shift from Abstract Expressionist to figurative canvases, filled with bean-shaped heads, rogue limbs and light bulbs, was controversial. David and Renée McKee helped steer a reappraisal of Guston’s late work — now revered by artists and critics — after his death in 1980.
News of the gallery’s closing brought out a rush of suitors courting the Guston estate, which has just selected Hauser & Wirth to handle its representation worldwide. Musa Mayer, Guston’s daughter and head of the estate, said she chose Hauser & Wirth “not only for its international reach,” but “especially because Iwan Wirth has been such a Guston enthusiast for years.” Its first Guston show, curated by the gallery’s partner Paul Schimmel, will open next spring in New York on West 18th Street.
